Linux Mint Wont Stay on the Main Hard Drive
Ok so I posted this here because I think Linux Mint is based off of Debian, am I wrong? Anyhow I installed mint to a seperate partition next to windows on my computer. I had my external unplugged at the time... It was actually plugged in at my neighbors. They where watching a movie I had on it; anyhow I plugged it back in went to bed woke up and it took out its own partition on the external... WHY?!
Please help me; thank you sooo much.

Hello and Welcome,
Can you be a little more descriptive, I'm having a hard time figuring out what your problem is.

If External Disk was unplugged during Mint Installation, there is no way installer could create partitions in it. Linux doesn't do anything automagically. Could you post the output of sudo fdisk -l command here?
